When researching weather or not to get a Small to accompany my LBGE, I read several posts where there are some forum members that have difficulty getting the small in upper temperatures. Quite honestly, it almost deterred my decision to get one. Fortunately, most of my cooks are 450 or below so I figured it would not be an issue for me.
Unintentionally, I found out my small will get to the upper temps and quite quickly, too. I lit the small with the DW and the bottom vent opened all the way. I went inside to get some burgers ready for the grill and when I went out to check it, the temp was at almost 700. I wasn't inside more than 15 - 20 min. So apparently I am one of the lucky ones who don't have a problem getting to higher temps on the small.
The question I have is, why the difference on temp ranges with some SBGE owners? In theory, if the Egg is designed the same, then they should all perform the same or close to it. However, I remember reading post where some people have trouble getting temps above 400. I find this interesting.
Any theories as to why?
